An Architectural marvel! The Giant Structure built in 2 and a half day , thus named " Dhai din ka jhopra " meaning buliding in 2 and a half day .

My experience, Explo description: 

Beyond the dargah, on the town outskirts, are the extraordinary ruins of the Adhai-din-ka-Jhonpra mosque. According to legend, construction in 1153 took 2½ days. Others say it was named after a festival lasting 2½ days. It was built as a Sanskrit college, but in 1198 Mohammed of Ghori seized Ajmer and converted the building into a mosque by adding a seven-arched wall covered with Islamic calligraphy in front of the pillared hall.
Although in need of restoration, it's an exquisite piece of architecture, with soaring domes, pillars and a beautiful arched screen, largely built from pieces of Jain and Hindu temples.
The prayer hall has 124 reused columns that support the beautifully carved ceiling in Jain style.

The pillar count in this building will always be different , no matter how many times you count.

My personal recommendations: 

This giant structure has some aura and will definetly feel it the moment you will visit --- as the palace is supposed to a fusion of two religion Hinduism and Islam.

How getting there: 

From the front gate of Ajmer Dargah , turn left. After 1 kilo metere on your left hand side you will find this tall structure.

A tip to eat: 

Nothing great nearby for vegetarian but will find some good non-veg stuff.
